In recent times, the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to restore audiovisual files from other eras has become a trend.
Experts have discovered in this technique a good way to make these images and videos look better, almost as if they had been recorded today.
Now, the YouTube channel Glamourdaze has restored an archive filmed in China in 1929. It is a fashion show held in Shanghai which, thanks to the modern technique used, has now been converted to 60 fps and 4K.
According to those in charge of the restoration, the AI increased the interpolation of frames from 15 fps to 60 fps with the Rife Flow Frames app, increasing the resolution from 540p to 4,000p.
The original file was also colored with Deoldify and the original 1929 sound recording was restored, adding a new ambience.
From the channel they also explain that the original video is part of the collection of the University of South Carolina, and what appears is a parade held on March 4, 1929 in the Chinese city.
In late July, a similar AI technique was used to restore the classic video showing the 1937 Hindenburg crash that left 35 people dead.
That edition also incorporated color as a way to show the flames and severity of the airship crash, which occurred at Lakehurst station in New Jersey.
